Brentford make the trip to Goodison Park to face Everton on Sunday as Thomas Frank’s side look to cap off a stellar debut campaign in the Premier League.
The Bees effectively sealed their safety in the top flight with a 3-0 win over Southampton last time out, having lost just once in their last six games.
Frank’s men were on the receiving end of a 4-1 thrashing on their last trip to the blue half of Merseyside in the FA Cup fourth round earlier this year and they will be keen to right the wrongs of that dismal afternoon on their return.
Here’s how the Bees could line up…
David Raya (GK) – The Bees’ defensive record has improved remarkably since the Spaniard returned from injury.
Kristoffer Ajer (RB) – Man of the match display against Southampton last time out, rounding off the victory with a terrific solo goal.
Pontus Jansson (CB) – Boasts the most minutes played for the Bees this season with over 3,200.
Mads Bech (CB) – Performed impressively in the 3-0 win over Southampton and should retain his place in the absence of Ethan Pinnock.
Rico Henry (LB) – A hugely reliable option at full back, offering defensive resilience and quality in possession.
Mathias Jensen (CM) – Among the few regular starters who has failed to net for the Bees this season and he will be keen to put that right before the end of the campaign.
Christian Norgaard (CM) – No Brentford player has completed more passes than the Dane’s 1,250 this season.
Christian Eriksen (CM) – It’s no coincidence that Brentford have improved since his arrival, with the Dane chipping in with a goal and three assists.
Bryan Mbeumo (RW) – Can operate in a variety of different roles, popping up with goals at crucial points throughout the season.
Ivan Toney (ST) – Brentford’s talisman this term and they will face a fight to retain his services this summer.
Yoane Wissa (LW) – Has proven an excellent source of goals, with his strike last weekend against Southampton taking him to nine for the campaign.
